85% of kidney stones are acid crystals like Uric Acid and Calcium Oxalate, which will not dissolve as long as the urine is acid. These crystals have sharp points and lodge painfully in one of the 2 renal ducts between the kidneys and the bladder. To get the crystals to dissolve one needs to buffer the urine to reduce acidity. This can be done by drinking 1 heaping teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda with plenty of water. Often the stones dissolved to the size of coarse sand are passed in the urine within the hour.
